My existing entries are used in Workbench, but if I choose "add new entry" in Multiterm, an error message appears: "null". After clicking OK, the next error message comes immediately: "java.lang.nullPointerException"
I can't imagine, what could have caused this.
I tried to create a new glossary from Excel and it doesn't work either. When I am ready with the process, the new glossary is empty.
Thanks for any help.
Judit

Try here for a starting point - it's your java version (perhaps) May 23, 2009

This thread is from last year, it may point you in the right direction (no pun intended):

disable the "Enable the next-generation Java plug-in" feature May 24, 2009

Hello Judit,

You can also try this:

"If you have JAVA 6 Update 10 and/or Update 11 version installed, you need to disable the "Enable the next-generation Java plug-in" feature.

To fix this problem:

1. Click Start and then select Control Panel from the menu. The Control Panel is displayed.
2. Double-click on Java. The Java Control Panel is displayed.
3. Click on the Advanced tab.
4. Clear the Enable the next-generation Java plug-in check box.
5. Click OK to save your changes and close the Java Control Panel.
6. Reboot your PC. "

Quick, simple, and it has worked for me. You can find the whole article on http://talisma.sdl.com - SDL Multiterm - Article No. 2362

Best regards,

Ildikó

Thank you, Ildikó and John. Disabling the next-generation Java plug-in helped. Really quick and simple.
